"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great." Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks - A League Of Their Own)
I am not sure if yesterdays workout was great or just stupid but it was what it was. So even after confirming with "THE MACHINE" that Thursday workout should NOT be a brick, I made it a brick. WHY, well because I apparently like my pillow too much in the morning, and it was pretty cold yesterday morning I might add. So the workout called for 45 minutes of swimming and 1 1/2 hours of running. The smart thing would have been to get up early and get the run done and then take a nice relaxing swim in the evening. But no that would be too easy (if I could have got up that is). So yours truly decides he would sleep in, in the AM and do both workouts in the evening. Knowing that the evening called for me getting home from work, eating, getting the kids ready for Karate, taking the kids to Karate, then when Kim finished her run she would come and relieve me at Karate so I can Start the 2+ hours of working out at about 7 last night.
I headed to the gym from Karate and got that workout done (I am real bad in the water so 45 minutes doesn't equal a lot of yards yet). But now the next problem I left myself with is that the gym where I was swimming at closes at 8:30pm so I had to change, and drive to the other gym where I could run on the dreadmill for an hour and a half. And thank you to Kim for bringing me the IPOD that we share (since one of us put HER'S through the washing machine). So I at an uncrustable, and a banana on the way to the other gym and started my run at about 8:20 pm.
The real sad thing is I know I would (and will) do the same thing the next time, well maybe not when the weather is nicer. No that probably won't matter to me.
